Enough Said

Theatrical Release: September 18, 2013
Enough Said


A divorced and single parent, Eva (Julia Louis Dreyfus) spends her days enjoying work as a masseuse but dreading her daughter’s impending departure for college. She meets Albert (James Gandolfini) – a sweet, funny and like-minded man also facing an empty nest. As their romance quickly blossoms, Eva befriends Marianne (Catherine Keener), her new massage client. Marianne is a beautiful poet who seems almost perfect except for one prominent quality: she rags on her ex-husband way too much. Suddenly, Eva finds herself doubting her own relationship with Albert as she learns the truth about Marianne’s Ex. ENOUGH SAID is a sharp, insightful comedy that humorously explores the mess that often comes with getting involved again.

Dove Review

This movie features likable characters in Eva (Julia Louis Dreyfus) and a man she meets at a party, Albert (James Gandolfini). They soon become a couple. Complications arise when Eva takes on giving massages to a new client named Marianne (Catherine Keener) only to discover that Marianne is Albert’s ex-wife. Eva is split between telling Albert but also is curious to learn more about Albert from Marianne, as Eva has gone through a painful divorce and doesn’t want to deal with the possibility of another one. She has to ultimately decide if she is going to listen to Marianne’s criticism of Albert or take Albert on her own terms.

Although the movie has its charming and funny moments concerning relationships, it is strong in the sex content and in language and so we can’t call this film a family-friendly movie.
